There were a couple inches of snow on the ground this morning, buy I eventually got to my office. In was pleasantly surprised that one of my orchids was blooming again. I ended up leaving early as the second part of the storm was coming that afternoon. I got back to my neighborhood before the storm hit and was home safe and sound soon after. Then sleet turned into snow quite rapidly and it was coming down 1-2 inches per hour. By 9PM the car was buried and the trees branches were weighed down and bending towards the ground.
